Lauren Michaels is exhausted with the push and pull of copy editing for Los Angeles’s woman’s magazine, Frenzy, which caters to pop culture, style, and above all, sex.

She wants to write for the magazine rather than edit, but her boss is convinced that Lauren’s conservative tendencies won’t fit in with the risqué nature of what Frenzy is about.

Convinced to make her mark, L

Sybil aka Lala
Lauren is the bookish girl next door who is everyone’s best friend and can always be depended on by those around her. It’s almost taken for granted by everyone that she will always be in the background. When an opportunity arises to further her career and for her to snag her dream job at the magazine she works for, she grabs it with both hands. The only problem? Somehow, straight-laced, good girl Lauren needs to infiltrate LA’s underground sex club scene.

As luck would have it Lauren meets one Na

Can a control obsessed/missionary-position type girl ler down her guard and put her trust in someone else? That's the ultimate question when Lauren "Lo" Michaels gets an assignment to explore the sex club scene in LA, in order to obtain a promotion with her magaizine.

What Lauren, her boss, her roommate, and just about everyone else, didn't expect, is that she'd explore that scene on a personal level. This all happens with an invitation to Fahrenheit, LA's dark secret club, made to her by a stran

Fahrenheit is everything. It brings curiosity, adventure, pleasure, humor, comic, references, panty melting Nate, pain, relief, love. Its an entire package deal. This is, by far, my favourite erotic-romance read.It is not your average book! This read is filled with so much emotion be it passion, fun, or love. I've personally enjoyed every word of this story from start to the end.

Alex Rosa has brilliantly presented this story to her readers. The execution of the story and the way it is styled, i

I LOVED this book! It is hot, steamy and a little funny! I could definitely relate to Lauren and felt almost like we were the same person. Lauren wants a promotion to journalist at the magazine she works for. Her boss, and friend, gives her an "impossible" assignment that ends up getting Lauren into the most exclusive sex club in L.A., Fahrenheit. I am so anxiously awaiting Garret's Fahrenheit story!

I am stunned. I don't know why I'm so surprised with how much I freaking enjoyed reading this book! I'm still craving for more! The entire thing is witty, funny, sassy, steamy and seriously blush worthy. I was flipping the pages like crazy. I couldn't stop reading it! It's such a quick read, but it's jam-packed with scenes that will leave you breathless. Literally. There was never a dull moment. Plus, the fun and cool comic book references were such a stark contrast to the burning hotness of the ...more

Fahrenheit by Alex Rosa is a story reminiscent of the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, a movie I loved. While Fahrenheit might remind me of that particular movie, the book is much steamier.

Fahrenheit has been a book I've been looking forward to since I heard about it on Alex Rosa's Facebook page, and through her Street Team; Once I got my hands on an ebook copy, it was only going to be a matter of time before I knew I needed a paperback copy. The moment I read the first page, I was hooked. As a reader, you start off on this journey with Lauren, thinking, okay, what is she going to get herself into, and how badly is it going to end up?

For a book that describes itself as exploring the underworld of sex clubs it’s curiously vanilla.

***I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author.***

I was a big fan of Alex Rosa's previous book, Tryst, so when I saw her release this book, I knew I'd have to get my hands on it.

This book did not disappoint. I already knew I was going to LOVE Nate and I totally did. I also LOVED Lauren's character...she was SO relateable (I feel like this is a trend for me in regards to Alex Rosa, she writes incredibly relateable characters!).

I loved the aspect of Fahrenheit. Probably o

Dude. So I finished this book in a day.

It's smut, but really funny smut. So be warned. You will be at your kids school, waiting to pick up your kid. Your going to start cracking up and another mom is going to be like "what's so funny?" And can you really start talking about dildos in the pick up line? I think that's a line that should not be crossed. No dildo talk at a place where there is also a swing set..

But the book was great. So funny, the characters were awesome. Nate wasn't just another

Started and finished this in a couple hours. Couldn't put it down. Just had to see what was in store for the lessons. Loved the batter between Lauren and Nate. Sizzling chemistry between them as well. Kind of bugged me how easy it was for her to say yes to his proportion. She just met him in asked store! Wish there was more of an epilogue but can't wait for Garrett's story.

Received this book from the author for an honest review. Great characters, great storyline, well-written, steamy, with a little romance and a little humor. I love Batman/Nate's character and once coupled with Lauren the sparks flew. I found myself at times feeling bad for Garrett and I look forward to reading more about him later. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more.

WOW! AMAZING! This is, by far, one of the greatest erotic romances I've ever read. Definitely in my Top 5 and one that is worth rereading and not alot of books are worth that.
This is one of those books where the characters are so well written that you can't help but to get emotionally invested. I laughed, I got nervous, I got angry and I cried right along with Lauren. It's very difficult to read through tears but I couldn't put it down.

Alex Rosa is a new author to me so I went into this book without any expectations. What I discovered was a refreshing story with a somewhat devious story line that I totally enjoyed. Who would have thought of what was instore for the two main characters? Much less the panty melting sexcapades.

Sex. A taboo subject that has graced our literature in many forms. Not all books with sex are good. Most are the most disgustingly written books to grace the shelves of the supermarkets but for some reason they fly off the shelves. But erotica done right… Not only will you get the steamy sex scenes that are very graphic, but you will also get a good storyline, well-defined characters and something that is actually enjoyable. Fahrenheit is one such story.

Fahrenheit is a fiercely entertaining read, right from it's first sentence.

I have to admit, when reading the very beginning of chapter one, I had to laugh aloud. Then, of course, I was hooked by the knowledge that, while I had figured out that Lauren was in a sex shop, I was in the dark as to why when she was so obviously embarrassed on an almost puritanical level (even though that character quirk just contributed more to her charm).

Then comes along Nate, who is dark, broody, and sinfully hand

Lauren Michaels is the prude and innocence walking. When her boss gives the assignment to investigate and tell what happens behind the doors of the sex clubs of LA, she starts making her research because this is the only opportunity she will have to become a journalist in the magazine.

The story is very unique since the start when Lauren starts her investigation in a sex shop and there is where Nate sees the innocence plast

A fun, sexy read by Alex Rosa!

I have to be honest - erotica is not one of my go-to genres. I’m a fan of Alex’s writing and her spin on romance, and so I was definitely keen to see how she tackled this genre.

The premise was a lot of fun - Lauren, a somewhat innocent budding journalist who is desperate to prove herself suddenly finds herself in way over her head. The opening scene was pretty priceless! Enter mysterious tall handsome man who seems like the answer to every possible prayer she may h

Lauren Michaels has been given a make or break assignment from her boss at the women’s magazine she works for. This will give her the opportunity to become a full time writer, which is exactly what she is hoping for.

There is a slight problem: Lauren has to write about the elusive sex clubs in LA. Lauren is not experienced in the sex department at all. She would never venture to a sex and definitely wouldn’t have sex with a stranger; at least that what she thinks at first.

Fahrenheit is such a fun book and it is oh so sexy. It is also hilarious in places, the author's sense of humour is fantastic. The scene where our heroine first meets the hero had me laughing out loud - which lead to me getting some very strange looks on the train! The storyline is interesting and the characters have more depth to them than I was expecting.
